Together Everyone Achieves More

Do you have a talented team, they’re just not achieving the results you want?

Are your leaders committed, but failing to inspire and motivate as you’d like?

And do you just know you’re not fully realising the potential in your business?

These challenges are familiar to many small business owners and in my experience, when the people in the business are not achieving the results the business expects, it’s always because there’s a tension between what the business owner wants and what the people in the business are actually doing.

Whether your business is moving forwards or backwards (and it’ll be one or the other – businesses may stall momentarily, but they soon start moving again!), you will have challenges.

As unique as your business challenges are, one thing is consistent:
they all involve people.

Your business is as good as the people you have working in it, so if your business is not where you want it to be, then then it’s the people aspect that needs addressing.  

All successful businesses recognise that their success comes through and as a result of their people.

Successful businesses have a growth strategy that has an emphasis on Leadership and Team Alignment.

An aligned team will ultimately deliver the result you want.

But what does ‘aligned’ mean in this context? 

Alignment reflects an active ownership by the team of the business vision and culture and of the specific role they play in both.  Alignment is when the team share an explicit aspiration and specific values and as a result take on responsibility for defined fuctions and, importantly, measurable outcomes.

Aligned teams are more ambitious, more focused, more accountable and ultimately more successful.

As Patrick Lencioni, author of ‘The Five Dysfunctions of a Team said: 

“If you could get all the people in an organisation rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time”

Focusing on Team Alignment as part of your growth strategy will enable you to take your team from a group of people who are attempting to coordinate their individual efforts, to a collective force on a mission who work collaboratively to actively drive your business forward through choice.

What difference would that make to your business?
